NJPW Dominion live tonight on iPPV
Kazuchika Okada, the 59th IWGP Heavyweight Champion, defends his title against Togi Makabe in the main event of NJPW Dominion, available live from Osaka tonight on iPPV.
Okada won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, his second, by defeating Hiroshi Tanahashi for the belt at Invasion Attack in April.
Makabe also holds a victory over Tanahashi though, which he used to claim the number one contender’s spot to Okada’s title.
He too will be looking to become IWGP Heavyweight Champion for the second time.
IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and Bullet Club leader Prince Devitt challenges Hiroshi Tanahashi to a one-on-one contest, also looking to use the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion as a stepping stone.
Devitt swept the Best of the Super Jr. XX tournament held earlier this year with wins in all of his pool A matches before taking out Kenny Omega in the semi-finals and finishing Alex Shelley in the tournament final for his second Best of the Super Jr. win.
Devitt issued a challenge to Tanahashi for Dominion after winning the tournament and informed NJPW of his goal to become the first man to hold both the IWGP Junior Heavyweight and Heavyweight Championships.
The Dominion iPPV also features an NWA Heavyweight Championship bout with Rob Conway defending his title, as well as appearances from Alex Shelley, Shelton Benjamin, TAKA Michinoku, New Zealand’s Bad Luck Fale, and more.
NJPW Dominion is live on iPPV tonight, June 22, from 8pm. The event costs $25 USD (approximately $32.15 NZD). Click here to order. Replays are available for viewing on demand once the live event has concluded.
